I've had this refrigerator for about four months now. It replaced a 15 year old top mount GE. It keeps our food fresher much longer, which is the best benefit we've enjoyed since upgrading. Knowing that it uses significantly less energy is nice. The water comes out nice and cold, we've never run out of ice because this is the unit with the second ice maker in the freezer. Some day I would like a stand-alone ice maker, but this does the trick for the time being. The door alarm is nice for little kids that stare at food instead of taking it out of the fridge or if the unit doesn't close entirely. The shelves feel well-built and long lasting.
I purchased a french door style fridge thinking it was the "fashionable" design. While it is an improvement over the top mount style, I think a quality side-by-side could be a better option for someone that uses freezer space as much as I do. Anything in boxes--pizza, frozen waffles, breakfast sausage, microwavable meals--there is no ideal location for these products. Pair this with an upright freezer. Due to the LG slim ice maker, the storage on the left door that I would like to use for condiments is too small. My top left shelf is entirely filled by condiments. This refrigerator also has an older style water filter. The new ones are located in less intrusive places like by the drawers. Some of the pantry drawers allow you to select a different temperature and this one doesn't. I don't know if that's a feature that I would use, or just one that I want because I don't have it.
If this is your first refrigerator that requires a waterline, I would recommend you have Best Buy send a plumber or you can do this yourself with their copper waterline install kit. I found that the Best Buy kit does not contain a self-piercing saddle valve though, which means you have to drill. Use Best Buy's copper line and your local hardware stores self-piercing saddle valve (if permitted by your local plumbing code).

I'm told good things about LG but this was a lemon

Nice looking refrigerator. Was difficult to get the temp to stay steady. Plenty of ice due to the dual ice makers... seems they are not producing units with the duals anymore. Mistake! Problems began 5 months in when the compressor failed the first time. Lost most of our food. Then it failed a month later... lost food again. Then two days later... more lost food. Why didn't I learn not to trust it?!?!? Finally, on the fourth failure in my almost 7 months of owning it, I said enough is enough and I want a new one. That was July 3rd. Here it is August 5th and I still have no refrigerator... don't try this at home kids! :-) We bought ALL of our appliances from Best Buy and all LG so we are replacing the defective unit with another LG. Fingers crossed because we really want them all to match. If this one fails, no more LG ever. Best Buy has been VERY helpful.... LG has been a pain and claims to not be able to do anything and to work with Best Buy. Ordered another model from Best Buy that is supposed to be delivered on 8/9... fingers crossed!

Great Value! Great look!

We recently replaced our tile floors with wood and our previous refrigerator had an occasional leak, so we went out "pricing to get an idea". Well, the associate knew a lot about the different styles, features, and showed us several that were in the range we had given. He asked us to hold for a minute while he checked some things. He came back and said I know this will be above the ramge you gave me, but you will get a better value, higher rated refrigerator for a few bucks more. He price matched online, and literaly got us an awesome product for a few hundred dollars more. The refrigerator was already on sale, then he got us bigger savings by price matching. (Nearly $900 less than original marked peice.)
My wife absolutey loves the new look and features. The one draw back we didnt pay attention to, is to open the bottom drawer in the refrigerator (used for lunch meats, cheeses etc) you have to open both doors of the refrigerator, really not a big deal......but we would suggest they change that feature. The black stainless is great, no prints and easy to clean. Ice/water dispenser is great for larger cups, and having the dual ice feature, a huge plus for get togethers.

Great looking stainless fridge
Posted by: KyKat from: Nicholasville, KY on
I have had my new fridge for a week and I love it! It is very spacious. This model has 2 ice makers, which is very nice. The one in the door is small, but big enough for my small family. The one in the freezer is the bomb! The water dispenser is powerful and a little messy, but its design allows you to fill large containers easily.

So far, so good!!
Posted by: Brad5ras from: on
We've had this refrigerator for a few weeks now and so far so good. Previously had a side-by-side and switched to the french doors. It takes a little getting used to, and trying to remember which side to open! But I do like all the space inside for wider items. Strong, sturdy adjustable shelves, so you can store heavy items and make things fit.
In-door ice and water dispenser works very nice. Any time the door is open the inside temp is displayed. Also, if the door is left open for too long, an alarm sounds letting you know. I had that problem with our old unit where I didn't quite close the door all the way, so that feature is nice.
There is also a second ice dispenser, found in the pull-out tray in the freezer. Nice for those times when you need a little more ice! The in-door ice maker stops when that compartment is full.
The black stainless is very nice and looks really sharp. We have light-oak cabinets in the kitchen and it looks great with them!
It doesn't have the same in-door storage space that we're used to, but it makes up for it with inside space.
Note: This review is for the black stainless, which is fairly new. I noticed that a number of the reviews on this page are for the stainless model, which has been out a bit longer. Make sure to read the right reviews! May or may not make a difference.........

a bit surprised
Posted by: SilviaMac from: on
Love the black stainless, however, I have a problem with the design of the fruit and veggie drawers. They are curved so that they waste a lot of space and its irritating. But at least I have a deli drawer. Secondly, I dont like the way the light in the freezer is blocked by the sliding drawer. It is difficult to find something in the freezer when the slide out drawer is covering the light. Overall its a fine refrigerator, its just that I was looking for perfectly functional and this is not. Too much trouble to return, I will get used to it. ugh!

Great first bottom freezer
Posted by: Caguameros1 from: on
I can't believe how I can fit more things in this fridge than my normal side by side even though it's supposed to be smaller I just live it.

Great performance and great looking
Posted by: TimeChallengedTechie from: Indiana on
A bit pricey when we purchased, but great space, looks great, VERY quiet, I believe must be real stainless steel as magnets do not stick. Time will tell on durability.

My husband and I love our new refrigerator. It's much bigger than our old one. The Led light on the inside makes it so easy to find things. We especially like having two ice bins to store the ice.
